Only Trust a Licensed and Experienced Water Treatment Company…
Like Heine Plumbing!
There are many local companies that offer and perform water conditioning services, but many of them don't have the proper certification or expertise to do the job properly.
And that can lead to big problems, including sewage back-up into your drinking water supply.
This is just one reason why New Jersey has a law stipulating that water conditioning systems must be installed by a licensed master plumber. Permits are also required throughout the state…so ask for credentials before you agree to service!
The Heine Plumbing Water Conditioning Process.
The first step to clean, pure water is a phone call to Heine Plumbing to schedule an in-home evaluation. Our certified Aqua Technician will then come to your home and evaluate your water supply system. It does not matter if you have an existing malfunctioning system, out-dated conditioning system, or no system at all.
If there is a sulfur problem in the house, the technician will also perform an on-site Hydrogen Sulfide test to measure how much gas is present in the water. The Aqua Technician will also take a water sample that is sent to Lancaster for testing and analysis.
Once the sample is received, Lancaster Water Treatment will test for the following at no cost to you:
- Total Dissolved Solids or TDS (dirt, sediment, etc.)
Why Is It Important To Test For All Of the Above Contaminants
Even When I only Have Symptoms Of One Contaminant?
Thanks to constantly evolving technology, there may be more than one method for treating a contaminant. However, if more than one contaminant is present, certain treatment methods may not be effective. For example, iron may be present at a low level where it will not demonstrate any symptoms. Its presence however, will reduce the capacity of a conventional water softener. Therefore, its presence is a factor when calculating the appropriate size of the water softener.
In addition, pH can have a major impact on water conditioning minerals. Excessively high or alkaline pH can reduce carbon’s ability to oxidize sulfur in units that remove hydrogen sulfide gas. Varying pH levels can also reduce the life of certain water conditioning minerals.
Don’t be concerned if this sounds too complicated. Our highly trained technicians will go over everything with you at your home. You will feel confident that you’ve made the right choice!
The law prohibits manufacturers of conditioning equipment from testing water for potability such as bacteria and such. Potability tests must be performed by a certified Laboratory.
Some Companies Offer “On Site” Water Testing.
Here’s Why We Don’t.
There are many factors that can affect the testing and test results of water. Based on our experience and knowledge, Heine Plumbing strongly believes that testing is best performed in a controlled environment by engineers with decades of experience. Simply put, water conditioning is an exact science. There is no guesswork involved. An inaccurate test can lead to incorrect product selection and installation.
We have a reputation for solving the problem first time, every time. And we don’t intend to put that reputation on the line by taking unnecessary shortcuts.
Water Conditioning to the Rescue.
When all is said and done, we’ll recommend the water conditioning solution that’s best for you. At the same time, we’ll explain your options and what to expect from each one.
Plus, we can provide whole-house or single-source solutions where, for example, you want to have pure water from your kitchen sink for the best taste, health factors, and cleaning efficiency.
